Big Style and Big Savings

When I was pregnant with Judah, I lusted after Freshly Picked mocassins. They were fairly new on the scene, and so freaking cute. But being the frugal gal I was and about to be on unpaid maternity leave, I just could not justify the price. So I did what I do, and I searched the internet for a cheaper alternative. I ended up on etsy and bought an adorable marigold yellow pair and felt good about supporting a small business.

I soon discovered Mini Boden, Hannah Andersson, Petite Bateau and a plethora of other over priced adorableness to covet and I hadn't even given birth to my daughter yet. Dressing Maple is the culmination of all the things I love in life: fashion, babies, pink, bunnies... it's one of my greatest joys in life. I don't even care how shallow that sounds!

You can imagine my delight, when a friend introduced me to Kidizen. An app that allows people to buy and sell children's clothes. Basically, a giant consignment shop with searching capability. I sell my kids old designer clothes and earn kid bucks that I then use to buy more designer kids clothes that I then sell once they grow out of. It has saved us so much money and allowed me to dress my kiddos so very stylishly. It feels good to support other moms in the process, too!

You can also cash out your Kid Bucks to your Paypal or bank account. And shipping is included in the prices. And some shops have discounts! It's a win for everybody.
